What 6th grade STEM means to me
Making new friends
At the beginning of the year, I thought that I wouldn't know anybody, but I made 3 friends that are now my BFFs.
When I was at Outdoor Lab, I didn't really know anyone in my cabin or group, but as the week went on, I felt like I had known them all my life.
I made Honor Roll 1st and 2nd trimester and I think I will make it in 3rd trimester.
High Potential week
I was asked to go back to outdoor for High Potential. This is a large accomplishment because not many kids are chosen.
Deer Creek open house
After the fall showcase, my partner and I were invited to present our No More Oil PBL at the Deer Creek showcase for enrolling kids and families.
What I learned about myself
I am Visual learner
I found this out when in Social Studies we took a quiz about the type of learner you are. The quiz told me that I am a visual learner more than other type of learner.
Quiet room/By myself
Throughout the year, I found that when I am in a quiet room and without any other people to distract me, I do better.
When I am given projects or assignments that are very structured, I do better than when they are more open ended. When things are not planed out, I get overwhelmed, stressed, stuck, and I get confused.
Tiny Home PBL
This PBL was one of my favorite PBL because it included parts from all of the class and it also was fun to hand make a building out of recycled materials
No More Oil PBL
I loved this PBL because I learned so many things that I didn't no about before like Biofuels and Hydraulic energy.
Black History Month Project
I liked the Black History Project so much because It was about things that are more serious than other PBLS.
